Fostering inclusion and meaningful connections
The Intercultural Centre (IC) provides opportunities for all learners to take part in events, activities and workshops that engender respect, inclusion, creativity, teamwork and resilience, as part of Bow Valley College’s “Open Doors – Open Minds” strategy.
Visit us in room N322 of North Campus, or reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We offer programming to support you in developing introductory skills in intercultural competence. Our events, activities and workshops focus on building self-awareness, learning new and diverse perspective, and engaging with difference.
Get involved at your campus and in your community! Whether it’s learning something new about your community through one of our presentations, or teaching your fellow learners about something you are passionate about, or helping out a local organization, we provide opportunities for you to volunteer, develop new skills, and have meaningful interactions with those around you.
The Intercultural Centre’s programming encourages the College community to see itself as part of an interconnected world. Through our events, activities and workshops, we strive to develop thinking that is truly global.

"I find that volunteering is important to help grow as a person. I started because I needed a change. It has helped me to step outside of my comfort zone."
